About Eden Montessori
Eden Montessori International School Algarve Portugal

Our Story

Eden Montessori International School was birthed from a yearning to provide relevant, respectful education to children in this 21st century.  A group of like-minded families united to find a way to allow our children to flourish, learn and grow in freedom. From a growing dissatisfaction with what mainstream education and its “one size fits all” approach has to offer we searched for an education system that is inclusive and respectful to children, and that also nurtures independence and a love of learning while offering a child freedom of choice within limits. We found Montessori and the rest, as they say, is history! Overcoming many hurdles during our first three years of trying to make a school a reality, and through much toil, blood, sweat and tears, EDEN Montessori International School was born.
